近日香港接二連三揭發外傭被虐個案,最轟動的莫過於印傭Erwiana受虐至全身多處嚴重受傷,更令香港蒙上「現代奴隸之都」的陰影。移民工都是工人,同樣應享有尊嚴工作,作為一個工人應得的權利,亦同樣應該得到香港政策的尊重和保障,香港對待外傭的政策,正正對她們的工作和生活有決定性的影響。職工盟關注所有在港工作的移民家務工處境,與國際特赥、國際家務工聯會發起一人一信聯署行動,要求香港正視導致外傭受虐的政策,善待外傭,終結現代奴隸制度。

 

許多外傭須繳付高昂中介費,部份更被扣起護照,陷入強逼勞動的境地,根據國際人權標準,在港工作外傭處境形同人口販賣。而香港對外傭實施「強制留宿規定」,令受虐外傭容易處於毫無社會連系的境地,不利她們尋求協助;同時,入境處對外傭的歧視性政策「兩星期遣返規定」,使外傭被解僱後,若在兩星期內不能找到新僱主便須隨即遣返,亦使外傭因懼怕失去工作而不敢貿然對不公平待遇進行申訴。香港政府明知外傭處境持續多年,但改善措施付諸闕如,等同於縱容外傭受虐事件一再在香港發生。

 

我們要求香港政府遏止一切剝削外傭的惡行:

 

-設立有效機制,積極監察、調查及懲罰收取高昂中介費、扣留護照及少付工資的中介公司。

 

-由政府設立中央機制,收取中介費及支付工資,以免僱傭代理及僱主剝削外傭。

 

-政府、外傭及僱主共同商討,達至「僱員無須支付任何費用」的國際標準 。

 

-廢除「強制留宿規定」,由僱主及外傭共同決定是否留宿僱主的居所。廢除只套用於外傭身上的「兩星期規定」,使外傭跟所有外地勞工一樣,得到平等的對待。

 

職工盟誠邀有良知的香港市民一同加入一人一信聯署行動,支持外傭得到應有勞工權利,終止一切對移民家務工的歧視政策。



立即行動,按此聯署終結香港現代奴隸制度

In Hong Kong we pride ourselves on the Rule of Law and treating others fairly. Yet the women who come here as domestic workers are systematically exploited by unscrupulous agencies and employers. Many are lied to about their jobs and wages, charged excessive illegal fees, paid less than the Minimum Allowable Wage, and have their passport confiscated. All these practices are against the law and can amount to trafficking for forced labour. This is a type of modern day slavery.

 

- Establish a robust, proactive body that monitors, investigates and punishes agencies that charge migrant domestic workers illegal fees, confiscate their passports and encourage underpayment of wages.

 

- Introduce a government-run system for payment of recruitment fees and wages so that agencies and employers cannot underpay workers.

 

- Establish a working group where government, workers and employers agree on recruitment fees, and work towards the international standard of “no fee to the employee”.

 

- Allow employers and workers to decide on whether the worker will live-in or out.
